Tips for Buying EarthBound

April 1st, 2013 | EarthBound, Hacking

Master EarthBound hacker H.S posted this today:

Finally, after a year in the making, the first part of EarthBound 2: The Re-Boundening is complete! The patch is available at the bottom of this post.

This hack takes place 6 years after the end of EarthBound, and follows Ness as he returns to Onett, only to find that things are much different than when he left. It seems new trouble is afoot.

I currently only have Onett complete, so I’ve made a demo of that part. As usual, use Lunar IPS to patch the .ips file onto a clean EarthBound rom.

And here are some screenshots!

I’ve only played a few minutes of it myself but it’s already pretty interesting. You can download it here:

Well played. Now is there anyway to unpatch? And if not, will this affect my saved games?

@AwelCruiz Generally there is no way to unpatch, just obtain another ROM legally. The .sav file should be setup separate.

Best practice is to always back things up.

If this is similar to the Chrono Trigger in Earthbound hack from way back, I will not be pleased.

Seems pretty “trouty”. I’ll wait a bit and have some yogurt to hold me over. See what I did there? Huh, HUH?!

It’s good that I always read comments first.

Haha! I’m totally keeping this, it’s even better than the Chrono Trigger one!

Tatsu_Ace said on Apr. 1, 2013

Wait, i didn’t use it yet, what happens? Now I’m scared D:

TyBlood13 said on Apr. 1, 2013

@Tatsu Ace
Nothing, it’s a fake patch

Does anyone know of a ips patch for mac 10.5.8?
